Resource Social Skills

Resource Social Skills is a class that uses instructional approaches to teach children proactive social skills. Helping students develop a positive self-esteem is a foundational component to social skill development. Social-emotional competence is taught as a critical part of every child's well being. Teaching students to deal with negative emotions that trigger inappropriate behaviors allows them the learning opportunity to put coping strategies into place and find positive ways to deal with negative emotions. Finally, social mapping and visual stories are used to connect behavior, emotions and consequences throughout the school day. Appropriate behaviors are taught to replace the unexpected behaviors. 


Resource Study Skills


Resource study skills is an instructional approach to teach students positive learning strategies. Students will learn the basics of organization through modeling and weekly maintenance. Students explore different learning preferences and cognitive approaches to education. Learning the new study skills and then applying them to daily work allows students the needed practice to develop their personal learning traits. On a weekly basis, students will learn to set academic goals and monitor their academic progress through self-advocacy, tracking assignments/tests, and weekly grade checks.
